While taping a stunt for Wednesday night’s episode of ‘The Jay Leno Show,’ Jay Leno accidentally hit his head.

Enter the Conan jokes.

After showing a clip of the incident in slow motion, Leno quips “I did a Conan!,” ribbing the ‘Tonight Show‘ host for a concussion suffered during a mock triathalon in September.

Without missing a beat Leno adds to thunderous applause, “I’d rather have done a Letterman…”

‘The Jay Leno Show’ has seen a dramatic ratings drop in recent weeks, reports USA Today. The funnyman has finished in last place in his 10 PM slot every night since September 21, ending Monday night with an all time low of 4.5 million viewers.
